2010’s new recipe experiments:
Bean and Squash Crumble
Nom! Quite a sweet dish between the squash, wine, tomatoes and rosemary, but not overly so. I had to make some changes to the original recipe for lack of ingredients (plus I’m not too keen on butter beans!), but it all worked fine
I made two individual portions – it is freezable, but I ended up munching the second the next day. It is nice cold, but also fine if reheated in the microwave. (recipe and picture source)
(good thing about this list: reminding me of yummy things I haven’t made in ages!)
Butternut Squash and Red Lentil Dhal
I’ve been drawn to the idea of making my own dhal for ages: I love lentils, I love curry; this is light and healthy. So finally!
Alas, it wasn’t great. Not bad, but… hmm. Of course, might have been better if I’d realised that the squash should have been pureed through the dish, not left in chunks – oops! Also, I combined the tarka ingredients into my main dish rather than cooking it separately. Also, I added a dollup of curry powder just… cos!
Made a nice big, freezable batch, but I think I still need to work on getting the flavour just so. (recipe and image source)
THE Fruit Loaf!
Finally got the recipe for sm’s famous fruit loaf – nom nom nom!! 🙂
